Winemaker

"The Valentina showcases a classic blend of Bordeaux grapes, each variety adding a layer of complexity to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Cabernet Sauvignon (56%) gives it structure, Merlot (23%) a vibrant heart, and Malbec (21%) a touch of attitude... just like my daughter Charli Valentina."

Production notes

Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 3 punch-downs per day.  Bladder pressed after an average 7 days of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation in barrel. 20 months of barrel aging in barrels of French and American origin; 30% new and 2nd year barrels, 70% neautral barrels. Bottled in June 2019.

Other notes

We can't stop thinking about Chef Gary Kucy's, of Rupert's in McCall, creation with Valentina: wine-braised Buffalo short ribs... or go decant with a German Black Forest cake.

When to drink: During the first few years, decant this wine for an hour and then enjoy. This gorgeous blend will continue to evolve beautifully over the next 5-25 years.
